On this day, April the 20th, 1999...

Quote:
Two teenage gunmen kill 13 people in a shooting spree at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. At about 11:20 a.m., Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, dressed in long trench coats, began shooting students outside the school before moving inside to continue their rampage. By the time SWAT team officers finally entered the school at about 3:00 p.m., Klebold and Harris had killed 12 fellow students and a teacher, and had wounded another 23 people. Then they turned their guns on themselves and committed suicide.


Kids their age don't plan ahead that far and rarely agree on anything, so there had to be an adult, a sick adult, that supplied the explosives, guns, plans, and double suicide -- Hypnosis or brainwashing is a common practice now, and in light of the Jones Massacre and Heavens Gate suicides, that showed how susceptible even the more intelligent are, I was surprised the police didn't consider it at the time.

@Rickoshay75,
Bullshit.
There's no reason whatever to suppose that a pair of teenagers couldn't plan and carry out a murder/suicide pact. We live in an emotionally disturbed culture.

We had an even more emotionally disturbed culture when I was in school, cold war, LSD, all those other drugs, race riots, assassinations, but not one case of high school planned massacres, or mass adult suicides.

@Rickoshay75,
It doesn't take much planning to be a copy cat.

You're right, after Columbine there was a rash of school massacres. Could be copycat, or it could be the same kind of brain washing, with the same influence by the same sick adult that planned the first one.

@Rickoshay75,
you might want to look at this page

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_shooting

plenty of school shootings of various degrees and participants to be found

this one
January 29, 1979: Grover Cleveland Elementary School Shootings, California, where 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer opened fire with a rifle, a gift from her father, killing 2 and wounding 9.
was made famous by Irish Punk Band The Boomtown Rats through their song I Don't Like Mondays



one of the comments Spencer made about why she did was, "I don't like Mondays"

Jonestown and Heavens Gate was just examples of just how easily people can be influenced to do ANYTHING, including intellectuals

Apparently you do not have, nor have you had much interaction, with teenagers.

I agree with u, Green Witch.

It is OBVIOUS that teenagers do a lot of planning,
e.g. selection of colleges and careers.
The premise of this thread is false, stupid & rong.

Wow youre all so ******* retarded.. for the guy who said there was no mass murder in his time at schools, charles whitman im 1966??
And to even consider they were brainwashed proves your a non aware retard.. you literally have to drop all your beliefs to understand them..
Im not saying awareness is why they did it but it contributed..
If you think about it, nothing means anything, its all just human opinion, nothing happens for a reason, we werent created in gods image, good and bad is only an opinion.. after knowing that, plus their situation, it drove dylan mad, eric hadnt reached that point yet because he was still in the early stages of hatred, after a while the hate starts to drive you crazy.. most of you will never understand their true personalities and what they meant by self awareness, that hopeless feeling of knowing everyone around you is a brainwashed idiot, too caught up in bullshit to realize that the world has no code and humans have no meaning.. there are a rare few and theyre not mass murderers but still, im sure it drove Eric crazy knowing he could never explain it to the mass idiots..
